Craig and I have talked for years about the desire to one day adopt children.  We always said one day in the future we would, and that day has arrived.  We went to our first class last week, which was more just information about making sure this is what/how you wanted to do adoption.  In March, we begin taking 3 hour classes for 10 weeks.  The whole process takes a while, so it could be a year before any children were placed with us.

We will more than likely do a sibling group, because there is a greater need for them.  Many people only want to adopt one at a time.  We are very excited about how God will work things out on this journey in our life.

Right now in the state of Alabama only, there are more than 300 children up for adoption.  That is a huge number for one state.

James 1:27 says, Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Please remember our family in your prayers as we embark on this journey.  Please always remember the very Many orphans all over the world.
